The final will be played on Sunday, October 22 in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Earlier, Harmanpreet Singh was at his best when he found the centre of the goal to take India's lead to 2-0 in the 19th minute.

Post the 10-minute half-time break, India scored two more goals to stamp their supremacy over Malaysia.

Just after the second goal, Lalit Upadhyay made it 3-0 for India in the 52nd minute, with the match in total control.
